Whereas Uncle Tom is moved and grooved by Jeff Lynne, singer/songwriter Adam is clearly also influenced by the likes of David Crosby, Neil Young, Tom Petty, The Beatles and a certain ELO maestro judging by the quality and feel of this predominantly rootsy folksy affair. There are some outstanding guitar driven "Cosmic Country" songs here such as the title track, the sassy and sublime "High Time (At Frisco Bay)" and the riff tinged rocker "L.A." grabbing the attention, with opener "(Our) Cosmic Dance", the classy "Rosemary" and "Sweet Dakota Blue", with its slide guitar Bluegrass hints harking back to Joni Mitchell's "Big Yellow Taxi", alongside the instantly amiable "Waiting For Someone". Indeed, this thirteen (13) song recording is not only a marvellous showcase for Adam Walsh in his own right, it's also the start of something special. Buy it, enjoy it! (9/10)
